FBI: Most Wanted season 5 - Release date, plot and latest news
Everything you need to know about the action crime drama's upcoming season.
FBI: Most Wanted fans, assemble - season 5 is only a few months away.
A popular spin-off of FBI, FBI: Most Wanted focuses on the work of the Fugitive Task Force, the men and women whose job it is to track down those pesky criminals who have gone on the run and are listed on the Bureau’s infamous Most Wanted list.
Season 5 will see Dylan McDermott return as Remy Scott, while Roxy Sternberg and Keisha Castle-Hughes are also expected to come back as former NYPD detective Sheryll Barnes and hacker/intelligence analyst Hana, respectively.
Unfortunately, not every series regular is set to return.
It was confirmed earlier this year that fan favourite character Special Agent Kristin Gaines – as played by Alexa Davalos – will not be returning for the fifth season.
In other casting news, Shantel VanSanten will be moving from FBI and taking on the role of Special Agent Nina Chase in FBI: Most Wanted season 5, with her character described as a skilled agent.
